CD Reviews

A Guilty Pleasure
R. T. Shepherd | Chas, South Carolina USA | 07/20/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Tempus Fugit, and so in middle age the wise listen to serious music and abandon television for the novel. But wait! There is always time to monitor punk rock. After all, one might want to write a review. Last night I monitored "Weird World Volume 1" as I painted, and after a time all of the words and melodies came back to me from those glory days of hippie baiting and seeking out dadaesque 45s. How The Weirdos came up with such astonishing music I can't say, and why musicians today to not aspire to such glory is best left for psychoanalyists to explain. You must hear this fourteen song collection, the perfect compliment to both Fear and the Germ's debut albums."
L.A. Punk at its Best
jazzrage | Port Washington, New York United States | 12/26/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is one of L.A. punk's classics. Though not the best band (that would be the Screamers but good luck finding any of their material), it is along with X, the Germs and Black Flag one of the great bands of the L.A. punk scene. Hard edged punk rockabilly with more than a bit of Clash style politics thrown in, this is not only a great comp., it is a fun listen. Green Day can only hold a candle to classic stuff like this. This was just before punk morphed into post-punk and hardcore and when it was punk for punk's sake."
2nd rate punkers? Hardly...

"The Weirdos are one of the greatest of the early punk bands. I love every song on this album, and the more you hear them the better they get. My favorite song is "Fort U.S.A", a both funny and disturbing song about gun control: "Well everybody's got a gun; and you dont have to be 21" This band is awesome and is essential to any punk fan or rock and roll fan. I also want other volumes! Volume 1, what a tease."
